Werner Daum is a German diplomat. From 1992–1995 he was Head of the Human Rights Department in the German Mission in Geneva; as such he represented Germany in the Commission on Human Rights and various other Human Rights bodies of the UN in Geneva.
In 2000-2001 he was a Fellow at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University. In Summer 2001, Daum wrote an article for the Harvard International Review entitled “Universalism and the West — An Agenda for Understanding” in which he harshly criticised the US government for destroying the Al-Shifa pharmaceutical factory in Khartoum during Operation Infinite Reach. He claimed that the attack caused a medication shortage, and that a "reasonable guess" for the death caused by this shortage is "tens of thousands".
